Faculty members who desire student assistants should indicate their need to their department chair or dean. Deans provide the Director of Financial Aid with consolidated requests for student assistants. If the names of particular students are indicated in the request, effort will be made to assign these students, provided they have made application to the Director of Financial Aid.
Student employees may work up to twenty (20) hours per week; however, financial aid places some restrictions on the number of hours a student may work. The responsibility for these hours lies with the department chair.
Student assistants are paid based on the job classification for the work performed. The Office of Financial Aid can provide information on job classifications and pay scales.
Students who qualify for the Work Study Program may work either on campus or off campus. Off-campus assignments are with public agencies, or private non-profit agencies and students are under the administrative control of the University of West Georgia.
The supervisor is expected to keep a record of work hours performed by assigned student assistants. If the faculty member does not have sufficient work for the assistant, he or she should report this to the department chair or dean to allow the student to be reassigned for ten maximum hours.
